About The Author

Hi, I’m DeVon Favors, author of Why Your Black Owned Business Needs
Design and Technology.

Throughout my professional life, I’ve worked alongside some of America’s most successful companies as part of their graphic design team. I saw firsthand how a uniformed digital presence can be the difference between a thriving business and a failing business. But what I also witnessed was how this information wasn’t reaching the Black
community.

By writing this book, I hope to change that.

In my 10+ years working with Black startups and Black entrepreneurs, I often saw their businesses struggle and fail. Not through lack of motivation or creativity, but from a knowledge gap when it came to operating in the digital world.

There was very little understanding of the importance of web presence or even how to hire the correct professional to create it. This realization was made even more sobering with the prediction that within our lifetime, the net worth of Black people in the US could fall to ZERO.

Not on my watch!

I grew up in Dayton, Ohio, before moving to the South Shore in Chicago, and “Community” has always been important.

For me, it’s more than a place and it’s more than the people. It’s the ability, and the willingness to help those around you, to build each other up for the collective good.

What my professional experience exposed was an opportunity…

I had the expertise and skill set that the community of Black business owners needed. If I could share my knowledge, and prevent that devastating “zero” prediction, then that’s what I would do.

After 10 years as a Graphic Designer, 6 years as a Front End Developer, and founding two digital agencies, Creating Favors and Building Favors, I sat down to write.

I hope you enjoy and I hope it puts your Black-owned business on the path to success.

Yours truly,
De’Von
